This moving crowd-pleaser profiles pioneering real-life Brazilian nurse Nise da Silveira, who, during the 1940s, advocated for treating mental patients with painting and art therapy rather than electroshock and lobotomies. In the process, she unleashed the talent of some of the foremost Brazilian artists of the 20th century.

This ebullient silent comedy tells of an ardent baseball fan who tries to save the last horse-drawn trolley line (run by his girlfriend’s grandfather) in speed-obsessed New York City. Partly filmed on location, the movie offers a fascinating look at 1920s NYC.

Fernand Léger, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Paul Poiret, René Lalique, and other vanguard French painters, architects, designers, dancers, and musicians were enlisted by filmmaker Marcel L’Herbier to collaborate with him on this “miscellany of modern art.” Newly restored, it’s a fantastic silent spectacle about a heartless opera singer and her many beaus, some of whom she drives to murder and suicide.
